Sometime ago I listened to a sermon about discerning Godly music. It talked about avoiding music that is dishonoring to the Lord, more specifically contemporary Christian music aka  CCM. I'm really not a huge fan of it anymore. I don't like the rock beat of it and alot of it is too "me" focused.
 I prefer hymns both old and new original ones. I like it even better with no instruments with just the voices. And I definitely do not like singing old hymns that have been modernized to have that CCM beat as though the original tune is broken.

The speaker played a portion of a CCM song the title I don't remember but the female singer voice was, well "breathy". I've heard this same "breathiness" in may secular love songs. It's really inappropriate if you're singing to the Lord.
  I know that women singers are usually targeted for singing this way, but I've heard some men CCM singers doing the same thing. My family listens to CCM in the car and some of the male singers are singing so breathy you'd think they were trying to seduce the listener.

Not all CCM is this way of course. I often wonder if it really should be sung in church though. Even the black gospel that we grew up with has changed with many of it being rap and hip hop style.

 I don't like leaving church feeling like I've been to a rock concert. Unfortunately many churches are like that now. That's why finding a church is going to be hard for me. My husband and teens CCM but I don't.

Well that is my "rant" for the day. This is something that has been on my mind for a long time.Perhaps I'm just old now.


  1. I too love some of the modern hymns but not that rocky, stuff. We found a church that sang only old hymns but something sure did not feel right about that church! We will find the right one again sometime

  2. I'm with you about CCM! I definitely don't think it belongs in a church service. We sing from the Trinity Hymnal only.

    For home listening though, I enjoy the Sons of Korah, you can find all of their albums on iTunes. They put the Psalms to music. Beautiful stuff. :)

WARNING: Some Parts of This Post Is Controversial!

I wonder what would happen if men had a march similar to the recent women's marches demanding their right not to be exposed to half dressed women in the workplace, in church, on the street, on magazine covers, etc? What if they marched demanding their right to be treated like men and not a child by their wives and girlfriends? To be allowed to be a dad instead of their child being killed in the womb? To not be portrayed on television and movies as idiots?

What would happen if they  wore (like inappropriately shaped hats the women wore on their heads to prove their womanhood ) on their heads inappropriately  shaped hats to prove their manhood?

 Satan has been telling lies to women ever since The Garden:

" I can wear this see through dress! It's my body!"

"It's his problem if my low cut blouse causes him to lust"

"It's not a baby, it's tissue! It's my body!"

"Motherhood degrades women"

25 Years Ago...

I married the love of my life. Back then I couldn't see 25 years into the future. I never imagined having three daughters.  We didn't anticipate struggles on both our parts but we are so grateful for the way the Lord has brought us through. Things are not perfect between but we continue to trust God and know that He can work things out.
And now for your giggling pleasure, here are a few pictures from our wedding. This was before I was into a conservative plain lifestyle. Sorry for the blurriness.

For Today

 Looking out my window  ...It has stopped snowing. It's been a mixture of snow, hail and rain today and it is very cold and windy out.
I am thinking... about whether I should prayerfully and gently confront a sister in the Lord who is being dishonest about something, though I hoped I had imagined it, sadly today I discovered it was true.☹
I am thankful... We made it home safely today after going into town and getting caught in the snowstorm. God is good!
One of my favorite things... is to read Keepers at Home magazine

I am wearing... a purple flowered dress covered up by my apron and black slippers

I am creating... well I will be sewing up some hanging veil head coverings. Some of the ones I have are getting stained. My middle daughter suggested I save my white veils for church or other church related activities. My husband suggested that I keep the stained ones for when I clean the house. They are so wise in their suggestions…
